Who We Are

Welcome to
Wall Street Girls!

Wall Street Girls is a financial education platform for driven and curious females interested or working in the financial sector. We are all about cultivating future female leaders in finance to close the industry’s outdated gender gap. We help high school and college students prepare for roles in finance, including in investment banking, private equity, hedge funds, and asset management, through roundtables and interactive workshops, virtual and in-person networking events, as well as a range of online resources. By bringing together an online knowledge base, mentorship opportunities, and a supportive community, Wall Street Girls hopes to inspire, educate, and empower the next generation of female leaders in the financial services industry.

How We Started

Hey there,

Thanks for stopping by! My name is Ximena, and I am the current CEO of Wall Street Girls. I have been leading the organization since April 2022. Welcome!

I am a rising junior at Bates College studying Economics with minors in Digital and Computational Studies as well as in Philosophy. This coming summer, I will be working as a private equity summer analyst at Palladium Equity Partners.

I met Tiffany, founder and former CEO of Wall Street Girls, when I was going through my own  finance recruiting process. Tiffany introduced me to the organization and I remember really resonating with our mission  and the community we were building. I first joined the team as a Corporate Outreach Coordinator and am truly excited to have the opportunity to lead it now.


As someone who comes from a liberal arts background, who is used to attending Economics classes as one of the only girls in the room, I completely understand the challenges young women have to face to break into the world of financea world where diverse groups of people have unfortunately been historically underrepresented. Moreover, as someone who has gone through the finance recruiting process, I know how important it is and how helpful it can be to have an inclusive and supportive community of other women  to turn to, connect with, learn from, and grow with. 


This is why here at Wall Street Girls, we aim to demystify the world of finance and help women, regardless of their age, background, and experiences, who are interested in finance, prepare for careers in this field. We offer skill-building workshops that cover topics ranging from career guidance to interviewing tips; we work directly with on-campus organizations to increase students’ awareness of the finance industry’s full career spectrum; we connect young women with relevant and relatable finance industry role models through mentorship and speaker events; and, most importantly, we build a supportive community of young women interested in finance through social events and online groups. Join me on my journey to empower the next generation of female leaders in finance!
